In our inaugural episodes of season two, we begin with a two-part interview with Jason Miller. Jason is an American communications strategist, political advisor and CEO of GETTR, a conservative social network alternative to Twitter. Jason is, perhaps, best known as the chief spokesman for the Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign and transition of former President Trump. In this episode we will discuss GETTR and the issues of free speech, social media censorship, and the digital town square. In part two, we will discuss the 2020 presidential election, The Big Lie, and the events of January 6th.

Jason Miller launched free speech social media platform GETTR on July 4th, 2021, and under his leadership the platform reached 1M users in only three days – the fastest growth for a social media platform of all time. GETTR now has more than 2M users globally, with a motto of “Free Speech, Independent Thought and Superior Technology,” and a promise to never deplatform or censor anyone for their political beliefs. GETTR’s tremendous growth has been fueled by an international desire to oppose cancel culture and declare independence from the Big Tech oligarchs in Silicon Valley, as well as an unparalleled guerrilla marketing campaign.
The importance of GETTR’s emergence as a cancel-free platform was highlighted at the end of Mr. Miller’s September 2021 trip to participate in CPAC Brazil. As he attempted to fly home to the United States, Mr. Miller and his traveling party were detained for three hours and questioned about the purpose of their visit, on orders from a politically minded Justice of Brazil’s Supreme Court. Though they were not accused of any wrongdoing and eventually released, the episode proved that enemies of freedom are everywhere: First they try to take your freedom of expression, then they try to take your freedom itself.
Before launching GETTR, Mr. Miller served as Senior Advisor to Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America, where he quarterbacked President Trump’s successful 2021 Impeachment Defense Team, and before that he served as Senior Advisor to President Trump’s 2020 campaign and Senior Communications Advisor to President Trump’s 2016 campaign. Mr. Miller also served as Communications Director for the Trump Transition Team.
In addition to his earlier work managing campaigns for U.S. House, U.S. Senate and Governor, as well as serving as a Chief of Staff on Capitol Hill, Mr. Miller has more than two decades of corporate communications, public relations and policy expertise advising clients on how to deal with the intersection of politics, policy, financial markets and the media. Mr. Miller has also provided extensive high-profile litigation communications support.
Mr. Miller currently serves as a Contributor for Newsmax TV, offering political analysis and insights for the Make America Great Again movement, the 2022 mid-term elections and policy debates in Washington, D.C.
A native of Seattle, Washington, Mr. Miller is a graduate of The George Washington University. He lives with his wife and two daughters in suburban Washington, D.C. You can learn more about GETTR at gettr.com, and you can follow Mr. Miller on GETTR at @JasonMillerinDC.
